's a democratic senate. 20 democrats are up for re-election in 2014. they're not as left wing as he is. they certainly didn't get elected in states as democrat and blue as obama did. so he's asking those guys to go out in front on his tax policies, his spending policies. remember, he just signed to make permanent 85% of the bush tax cuts in dollar terms, 99% of the bush tax cuts in terms of who was affected. these are tax cuts the democratic party has run against for 12 years as a bad idea from start to finish. so the republicans made a hundred steps forward and took back either one or 15 steps and then obama locked it in. why? largely because democrats in the senate did not want to be attached to the size of tax increases that the president wanted. so he has a democrat senate that's not as left wing as he is. reid may be, but reid has to take care of his own. and a republican house elected every bit as much as he was. >> let me bring jake back. you got an update from the white house about this. >> well, just what his next hundred days will look like. obviously he's talked about trying

as much security support as we possibly could. >> reporter: throughout the senate hearing there was no doubt how personally clinton took the death of the four americans in benghazi. >> i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i with you the my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> reporter: but also clear, republicans angry charges at the state department and the obama administration did not see the danger signs and were not forthcoming about what happened. >> the american people deserve to know answers and they certainly don't deserve false answers. and the answers that were given the american people on september 15th by the ambassador to the united nations were false. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> but what was -- >> report
